Hello, everyone!

My first blog update in 2020!

One of the goals that I have for this year is that I would love to publish newsletters. So that’s I have been working on lately. And It’s ready for you to subscribe! Yay! I’m hoping to share more about latest info, tips of some of my patterns and free patterns through newsletters.

I prepared some good stuff for my subscribers! You will get 25% off coupon code to all my digital patterns through 3/31/2020. The coupon code is valid until 3/31/2020. (US EST)

And also you will get the free pattern! Meet BOTANICAL GARDEN quilt!!!

It’s 56″x 56″ finished. The pattern includes material requirements, step by step instructions with diagrams, and coloring page.

I used kona cotton solid by Robertkaufman for the top and Essex Yarn Dyed Classic Natural Woven (edited: Sorry! NOT linen) for the backing. Actually it’s not easy to find a perfect backing for me. Because I chose that colors and fabrics that I love first, then decided what to use for the back after. This time was a bit tough to find one so I picked neutral color + texture . This one worked great and I love it!!!

Can you believe that you only need a half day to make the quilt top!? If you are quick sewer, then probably you need just a couple of hours!

IKEA like pillowcase top tutorial


Thank you for stopping by!

I would like to make a quick post to show you my finished pillowcase and share how to make the top.


This IKEA like pillowcase looks very nice on IKEA chair! lol  This pillowcase is very easy to make and quick project for every skill level of sewers.


You need (4)10″x 22″ fabrics for the top.

From each color, cut (2)3.5″x 22″ strips and (1)2.5″x 22″ strip.


From each color,

Cross cut into (6)3.5″x 3.5″ squares from one 3.5″ width of strip and (3)3.5″x 3.5″ squares from the other strip.

Cross cut into (8)2.5″x 2.5″ squares from 2.5″ width of strip and (1) 2.5″x 2.5″ square from remaining 3.5″ width of strip.

You have (9)3.5″x 3.5″ squares and (9) 2.5″x 2.5″ squares from each color of fabric.

If you want to use your scraps, you need,

(36)3.5″x 3.5″ squares and (36) 2.5″x 2.5″ squares in total. 


So what I did was, took each color of (9)2.5″ squares and divided to three of (3)2.5″ squares. And make sure that these divided 2.5″ squares are not the same color of 3.5″ squares when you make four sets of (9)3.5″x 3.5″ squares and (9) 2.5″x 2.5″ squares. Refer to the above photo.

Draw a diagonal line on back of the 2.5″ square. Layer the square onto the corner of 3.5″ square. The right sides together, sew on the line. Trim the seam allowance to 1/4″, open the seam and press. Repeat the steps.

Gather four units. I took one from each set. Sew the units together. Open the seam and press.


Unfinished block size is 6.5″x 6.5″.  Make 9 blocks.


Each row has 3 blocks and each column has 3 blocks.  Piece them together. Open the seam and press.

This pillowcase top unfinished size is 18.5″x 18.5″.

Finish up the pillowcase using your preferred method.


I machine quilted 1/4″ away from the pieced line. I used Aurifil 50wt #2783 for quilting and it worked perfectly!

I did easy envelope backing to finish up this pillowcase with no binding. I was a little worried about no binding but it looks nice and I love it!


It’s perfect here!

I enjoyed this quick project and want to make another one!!!

Happy Spring!



Tonight is Super Bowl! All american football fans must be so thrilled! To be honest, I’m not football person but I enjoy Super Bowl every year! Especially half time show!!! We got the food and kids are taking a nap so that they can stay up late a little! We are so ready for tonight!


I’ve been working on a fun and cute pattern and I’m very excited to share it today!





How cute is that?! I got an inspiration from many artists who make posters and paintings of VW bus. They are so cute! So I couldn’t resist! I made this design using my ON THE ROAD pattern. It was so fun to make this mini quilt!



By the way, I realized that I’ve never posted about this pattern… well this is ON THE ROAD pattern which I released December 2018!





This I LOVE version (I call it!) is an additional pattern to ON THE ROAD pattern. So it’s free pattern for people who already purchased. But if not, the pattern is available in my Etsy¬†shop, so please go and grab it!!!


This is my first attempt to make the kind of free pattern. I think this quilt block is so cute and fun that we can’t just make one time. I’m hoping to share more unique patterns with this block in the future!!!


One heart block version


The pattern has two heart block options. You can choose your favorite!

Happy quilting!
